Highlight Alternate Column Color in a Table using jQuery

If you want to highlight alternate columns of a table using jQuery, use this simple jQuery

    <script type="text/javascript">

        $(document).ready(function() {

        $("#GridView1 tr td:nth-child(even)")

         .css("background", "gray");




where GridView1 is the id of the table.

Will you give this article a +1 ? Thanks in advance

Hi, it's a nice script, but the hover state for cells doesn't work when you apply it :/ otherwise it's great. Do you know what I should do to modify it?
